Stephen Scullion – Out of shape to 2:17.55 Marathon in 13 Weeks

Stephen Scullion – Out of shape to 2:17.55 Marathon in 13 Weeks

“The Comeback” by Stephen Scullion

My accounts and daily training program which took me from “NO lie” 8 months out from athletics, my maximum weeks mileage would have been around 12 in the 8 months before this training block, but in 13 weeks I ran 2.17.55.

This is a detailed analysis of the training I did, during my build up to London Marathon 2017, what started as an attempt to resurrect my running career and lose some weight, eventually turned into a VERY aggressive assault at the World championships A standard. Little did I know when I called up Scott Overall on the 20th January asking for a Championship entry to London Marathon, would I embark on the wonderful training adventure I’m about to outline detail.

David Rudisha: Diet

David Rudisha: Diet

The Sweat Elite team spent a month in Suluta, the running hub of Ethiopia at the same time Mo Farah was preparing for the London Marathon 2019.
When discussing diet with Mo Farah, he mentioned that he tends to eat a relatively large breakfast before training, as he commences his morning training session at around 9am. Farah mentioned that his stomach is able to process food quite quickly, so he usually eats breakfast around 30-40 minutes before training, which usually consists of 2 pieces of toast (multi grain bread) with jam and butter as well as a small bowl of porridge and a cup of coffee. Post training, it’s a protein shake and carbohydrate drink and did express how important it is for him to consume this within the “25 minute window” post finishing his training session.
